The Caritas confederation has lost a valued colleague, Mark Snyder, who was country representative in Sudan for Catholic Relief Services (a North American member of the Caritas network). He died on 30th July after being diagnosed with malaria.
Lesley-Anne Knight, Secretary General of Caritas Internationalis, said, “I am really saddened by the news which has been so sudden. Mark was totally dedicated to development and justice, and he was a man committed to the poor and marginalised. He brought much needed expertise and skills in mediation and reconciliation to the Sudan context over recent years. This is an enormous loss for the whole Caritas family and our love and prayers go to his wife, children and CRS colleagues.”
Caritas Africa expresses its heartfelt condolences to Mark Snyder’s wife and children as well as to all his colleagues from CRS and his many friends in Sudanaid.
